I had them as reps off ATU in Germany on a A4 I sold while having my export-business;)
So, YES they where available as rep`sI:
At that time available from ATU in 15 & 16"

Correct Paul, A8 had them as 17", but I assumed the one pictured are not due to size
Please do correct me though:)

Thanks Nelds T: just wondering if audi wheel bolts would work, as they held them on the original car and a tyre fitter pal of mine says they are the same thread :)
yes mate they will be the same thread i.e 1.50 but just check the lengh...put stud through the wheel,you are looking for at least 20mm thread showing for them to bite nice

Hi
they wont be long enough
standard audi bolts are 27mm thread
the t4 needs a minimum of 35mm as the discs are thicker than a car and the hubs have more thread due too it being a commercial vehicle .T:
